I think that unless there's been a new entry into the desktop printer's
paper market, Hammermill is generally about the best "laser" paper
There are other good papers out there, but Laser Plus and Laser Print are
the premium papers. Though I would like to know the ph of Hammermill's
A true clay-coated paper may suffer from squirming around a bit as it
passes over/through the printer's rollers. It is a bit "slick."
